I have had this switch lock-up on me and require a physical power reset 4 times in the last 6 months. Does anyone have any ideas why and/or had similar experiences? Thanks in advance!

Re: 2948G-L3

What do you mean by a switch lock-up ? Do you mean that the switch hangs, without any response, and you have to reboot ??

Re: 2948G-L3

Yes, sorry for the poor descrption of the issue.

Re: 2948G-L3

What are the circumstances under which you experience this. Is this happening, when you issue any commands ???

Re: 2948G-L3

no commands, just normal operation. However, when this switch was sold to the client they were sold the wrong type. For example, when I was hired they needed it to act like a regular layer 2 switch and I had to dumb it out and bridge all ports so that the devices would communicate with each other. I am using one of the gigabit ports as a link to attach to a 4006 Sup II engine uplink and for some reason has to be power cycled to allow communication to be restored between ports.
